The novelty with the still conventional name Ferrari 488 GTO will follow in the footsteps of special versions 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale.

A more powerful version of the supercar Ferrari 488 with the GTO index will hit the market this year. This is reported by the publication AutoGuide with reference to the database of models Ferrari 2018, submitted for certification by the California Air Resources Board.

In the declassified certification table, there is a “488 Special Series Coupe” entry along with the existing 488 GTB, 488 Spider, GTC4Lusso T and California T models. All of them are equipped with the award-winning 3.9-liter V8 twin-turbo and seven-speed dual clutch gearbox . It is expected that the novelty will receive the GTO index, following the example of earlier Ferrari 599, 288 and 250.

According to rumors, the power of the new version of the supercar from Maranello will be 700 horsepower. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will be at 2.7 seconds, and up to 200 km / hour – 7.5 seconds.

The world premiere of hardcore Ferrari 488 GTO is expected at the international automobile exhibition in Geneva in early March. Its main competitors will be special versions of Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Porsche 911 GT2 RS. This includes the McLaren 720S, which is already more powerful than the standard version.
